Why We Love It

Detroit, nicknamed Motor City, is known as an American automotive center as well as the birthplace of Motown music. Built over a salt bed, the people of Detroit are proud of their city, including its waterfront views, historic buildings, and the famous Henry Ford Museum. In random facts, Detroit supplied 75% of liquor during Prohibition - thank you, Detroit.
